Cask Handpump at the Brewery Tap, Liverpool 11/06/2005 cgarvieuk (26077) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 3, 2007
Golden coloured hoppy and crisp on the palate. Banana fruit flavour. Some bitterness and dryness in a full malt finish.

Hand pumped at GBBF 05, with a big head. Fruity, rounded flavour: jelly tots and pretend tartness, with moments of sugar and salt. Definitely interesting and worth trying. Spiesy (2337) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2005
Draft, at the Radison Hotel, Liverpool. chriso (7536) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2005
Pale golden pils with a nice foaming white head. The aroma is immediately different with farm yard characteristics amongst the regular lager malt and hops. The difference is what gives this beer its appeal.
Cask (handpump) GBBF, August 2005. Cains must have spent a fair amount of dosh on advertising hype for this beer. For me, at least, the reality was rather more mundane. Gold colour. Right sparkler. High carbonation. Soft and sweetish. That’s about it for me. Not very interesting.

Aug 07 Cask conditioned @ Giddy Bridge (JDW), Soton. Some lagery malts and grassy hops with a little fruity banana. Fairly drinkable but not great. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2007
Cask at ’Spoons, Milton Keynes. Gold with a small white head. Odd malty raisin aroma, Sweet taste with a little fruity sourness and a hint of bitterness to finish. Unusual, but more enjoyable than most lagers. tiggmtl (4543) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2005
Cask lager? Has to be tried... Rather plain but clean malt aroma with some light grassy and floral hops. Clear golden body topped by low white head that lasts well and laces a bit. Bready, toasty malt flavour with some floral and grassy hops and light bitterness as well as a low fruitiness. Light body with somewhat low carbonation - again I expect the very tight sparkler tap has something to do with that. This seems more like an ale that was fermented and aged at very cold temperatures. It doesn’t seem to have the crispness of a lager. Still it is enjoyable enough if somewhat simple. Cask at GBBF 2005. RoyceH (1200) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 30, 2007
Cask, Bon Accord, Glasgow, RBESG 07. Gold with a thin white head. Quite sweet toffee buttery nose, some hoppiness. Mouth is very toffee sweet, coating, slightly dry. Too sweet. tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2008
1/2 pint cask at Dispensary pub, Liverpool. Golden color, fine white head. Aroma is grainy malt, some hops. Flavor is sweet malt, fruit and hops. Ok lager.
